Comments Dr. O’Boyle has been with the Environmental Protection Agency since 2001. He works mainly on assessing the water quality status of estuaries and coastal waters and is involved in the implementation of the Water Framework Directive in Ireland. His main professional interests include understanding the impact of both human pressures (e.g., nutrient enrichment) and natural phenomena (e.g., harmful algal blooms) on the state of the marine environment.
